What to see at the 24th Biennale of Sydney

The 24th Biennale of Sydney is open to the public, now and until the 10th of June 2024. The title and theme of this iteration is Ten Thousand Suns, shaped by Artistic Directors Cosmin Costinaş and Inti Guerrero.

The Biennale ‘proposes celebration as both a method and a source of joy, inspired by legacies of collective resistance and coming together to thrive in the face of injustice. With an exhibition of contemporary art at its core, the event draws from multiple histories, voices and perspectives, to explore connected thematic threads, from the celebration of the resurgence of First Nations technologies and knowledges, to Queer resilience, and carnival traditions across the world. The program also explores the atomic era, a concentrated time of climate alteration through human exploitation, within the context of today’s moment of climate emergency and a refusal to concede to an apocalyptic vision of the future.’

The BoS will offer exhibitions and art experiences across six Sydney venues, including artist talks, live music, panels, performances, and workshops. Head along to the following spaces and enjoy the international presentation of contemporary art. You can also participate in Family Day and the Art After Dark programming.

The 2024 presentations mark 50 years of the Biennale of Sydney, and this show hopes to be particularly celebratory with the team sharing ‘the 2024 edition challenges Western fatalistic constructions of the apocalypse and embraces a hopeful outlook around a possible future lived in joy, produced in common and shared widely.’
